Etisalat recently rolled out its latest feature, known as Multi-Access Edge computing, or MEC. MEC architecture will enable Etisalat to implement state of the art 5G-styled services. This will start with its Content Delivery Network (CDN).
The MEC solution is a network architecture
that provides high-bandwidth, real-time, low-latency access to radio network
information and gives operators the ability to open their networks to a new
ecosystem and value chain.
The deployment of MEC architecture
is imperative for 4G/5G service providers, as significantly reduced latency is
critical for implementing the new era of revenue-generating services that
include, but are not limited, to autonomous driving, virtual reality gaming, augmented
reality and IoT.
MEC architecture is ideal for
hosting high-bandwidth, low-latency applications in the next-generation of digital
mobile networks. By moving the most demanding applications, such as video,
further towards the network edge, operators ensure the best performance and
experience for consumer and enterprise customers.
MEC architecture is perfect for
next generation digital mobile networks as it is ideal for hosting
high-bandwidth and low-latency applications. Operators can ensure top
performance and experience for consumers and enterprise customers, by placing
the most demanding applications like video, closer to the network edge.
Etisalat have carried out various tests
and have monitored the performance of the MEC-based CDN solution across several
areas, in order to demonstrate the benefits of this architecture. The areas
looked at were, time to first byte, total load time, and latency. The tests
showed improvements up to 90% across the mentioned areas in comparison to
hosting the video content on internet or on the content network.
Etisalat claims to have eliminated
the obstacles for the adoption of the MEC, and has given initial exposure to
the architecture and demonstrated that the virtualized solution can provide
carrier-grade performance at the edge of the network. Furthermore, the MEC has
enabled the adoption of high-bandwidth low-latency applications for both 4G and
The world of foldable phones keeps welcoming more additions to its roster. And it makes sense. The foldable phones are selling well even with their pricy asking point. Huawei’s latest foldable is the Huawei P50 Pocket. While it does many things right, it also has its shortcomings. We will take a deeper look at it. […]
